protecting the community. it gives you a feeling of unity. i can't remember the last time i have seen law enforcement cheered like this as they drive-thru with lights flashing. there is a helicopter flying overhead as well. the helicopter that played a big role in spotting the suspects. they are cheering the helicopter, the police cars. just an incredible night in watertown, brian. >> i'm sitting here thinking i have known a lot of cops. i grew up with a lot. i have done a lot of ride alongs on the night shift. if you have known a police officer and you have been with them it can sometimes feel like the most thankless job in the world. yet on their worst day ever to have their best reception ever on the job, nothing wrong with this in the world. this is awfully gratifying. they have done something extraordinary. >> reporter: exactly. in talking to the police officers, they really feel that. a police officer was lost at m.i.t. another officer was badly wounded. you know, they took hits along the way here. it could have been a lot worse. in talking to people in the community, law enforcemen
back and pushed back all day and crouching down with law enforcement as their guns were drawn. very intense going house by house to search the suspect. as you see people out here on the streets, feeling released that the suspect suspect has been captured. . >> starting last night with the police chase, there were 200 shot fires from the suspect. the suspect were throwing homemade explosives out of their car as the police were chasing him. i listened to one interview from the gentleman from the home near the shoot out, he says that he and his family were terrified. he kept on praying, he and his family, and wife and the dog all left into the bathroom and jumped into the bathtub. they kept their heads down and praying. now, here is president obama. >> after a vicious attack on their setting. they did their part as citizens and partner in this investigation. boston police and state police and local police across the commonweal massachusetts responded with bravery. tonight, we close an important chapter in this. after the attack on monday, i directed the full resources of federal govern
chanting usa and praising the good work of the boston pd and other law enforcement service personnel and first responders who were on the scene, literally risking their lives. this guy and his brother were said to have been throwing grenades at them less than 24 hours earlier, not to mention bombs set off in boston by these guys, according to authorities earlier in the week. and including shots that were fired moments before he was taken. so this man remained armed and dangerous to the very end. again, he is said to be in the hospital today. the fbi said, and law enforcement said he was in serious condition. but dr. cebull was on earlier saying he spoke to the hospital, and they said that is the term now. we are told that he's protected by armed guards. we believe he's been unable to answer questions so far. our chief intelligence correspondent, katherine herage is working this story. what a week. i know it's not about you, katherine, but you worked hard on this story all week and we appreciate you being here on a saturday as well. what's the latest? >> we have as a team, megyn. than
saw initially. then we saw, you know, just many, many, many, many hundreds and hundreds of law enforcement officials flooded into the neighborhood. >> and when it came to the actual moment of capture and arrest, did you actually see that happening? >> no. we did not see that happening. we knew when it happened because a big round of applause went up, you know, but the people who were there, i think it was probably law enforcement who applauded first and then all the neighbors heard it so we all applauded. >> it's obviously been a very tense time for everybody in that neighborhood. how are you feeling now it's all over? >> it's been a horrendous week because in many different ways, all of us have experienced the horror of the bombing. myself personally, i was down, i was about ten yards away from the second bomb explosion. so it was a situation where we were, you know, recovering from what happened on monday and then for some of us who live in watertown, especially in this neighborhood, it was kind of what we had already been through. it's been tough. >> you feel very relieved,
immigration laws. two large companies in minnesota, carlson and medtronic, say the current law hurts their ability to recruit and retain top talent. they are part of a coalition, uniting american families act, and a bill will give committed same-sex couples the same immigration opportunities as other couples. i was recently told of another minnesota company, a smaller company, that will likely have to shut down because the owners, a same-sex couple, will not be able to stay in the country. this point i would like it to enter into the record a letter from the 30 companies that comprise this coalition. is that all right, mr. chairman? i would like to enter a letter from 30 companies in support of your bill. >> under those circumstances, it is quite all right, and of course we will be delighted to have it. tonow everybody will want read it before that day is out. thank you. >> ok, thank you. i just want to finish this point. maybe ask mr. holtz-eakin speak to it. do we not miss an opportunity to strengthen our economy by not allowing lbgt citizens to sponsor their partners as residency
attempt to apprehend them except law enforcement. do not take any action on your own. >> reporter: it was no exaggeration. late last night, authorities discovered mit police officer sean collier shot and killed by the suspects. at first, authorities didn't realize there was a connection to the bombing. but then authorities say the two men carjacked a mercedes suv in cambridge, briefly kidnapped the driver, and led police on a wild, violent chase through the streets of neighboring watertown. then a dramatic shoot-out. in all, 200 rounds were fired between the police and the suspect, who also reportedly threw explosives from their car. >> in the exchange of the gunfire, we believe one of the suspects was struck and ultimately taken into custody. >> reporter: tamerlan tsarnaev was critically injured during the firefight and taken to a nearby hospital, where he eventually died. >> we spent 10, 15 minutes trying to resuscitate this patient. >> reporter: but his alleged accomplice was still on the loose. an army of police descended on the neighborhood. >> we're at the corner of mt. aubu
. i want to congratulate and thank all of the law enforcement authorities for the extraordinary job that they have been doing on behalf of our citizens. in the past few days, we have seen the best and the worst of human behavior. it is the best that all of us really want to focus on. like everyone, we are going to keep watching. we will await word from the law enforcement officers before commenting further. it's a huge easure fore and an important moment to welcome one of our most important partners, our close neighbor and our friend, and i want to welcome my friend, the secretary. one of the first calls i made when i became secretary of state was to josé. we share an alma mater together. he was a graduate student, i was an undergraduate. whatever we don't say right today, you can blame it on them. we obviously share much much more than alma mater. both of us are privileged to represent our extraordinary countries. we share a remarkable friendship and very strong partnership that is growing stronger all the time. for generations we have lived side-by-side as families and neighbors,
. >> what are your thought as we look at how this unfolded. my hat goes off to law enforcement. we can only hope they will get the information as this goes forward. >> all week log, i am overwhelmed at the public support, the cooperation between the public, the law enforcement and the media and the way the word got out and the outpouring of help. i think back to the times i was working on the unabomb and atf and postal inspection service and working in the mountains of western north carolina, on the olympic bomber, eric robert rudolph. one of the things that came back to me as i thought about those days and i watched these people in action, they worked hard all week. they are exhausted. the people of boston are composted. and tonight, they show the world and set an example what have america's all about in the face of tential tragedies. i also think back and can't help but to wonder and think about the fact we are sitting here on top of april 19, april 20, these are significant days to anyone who has worked terrorism. this is the anniversary of the oklahoma city bombing in april of 1995. it
, a neighbor, who quickly alerted law enforcement. at 8:40 eastern, applause on the scene as we heard moments ago. and moments later, this tweet from the boston police department, "suspect in custody. officers sweeping the area. stand by for further info. "president obama will speak a minute or so from now. the suspect is taken alive, now in the hospital in serious condition. the exact meaning of that unclear. let's go to jessica yellin who is standing by at the white house. jessica? >> reporter: anderson, this is an opportunity for the president to come out here and cheer on boston. thank the police there, honor the victims, and remind the nation that america doesn't stop for terrorism. president obama watched all of this unfold and the capture go down live on television in the white house as the rest of the nation did. as soon as he learned that the capture was happening, he went across the coloinated, over to the oval office and sat there with staff where he got a call from fbi director muller who officially notified him that it was true, the suspect was captured alive. then the president
in ten or 15 minutes. >> we learned today from the law enforcement press conference around 5:00 that suspect number two, when who has been identified as dzhokar tsarnaev escaped last night's shootout. his older brother died. that's confirmed as well. and we were told today at the press conference, i think much to people's astonishment that dzhokar tsarnaev escaped on foot. and how could he possibly escape the scene on foot and be far away, and now if that is the case and he is in the boat and just a square mile away, that it makes sense he found somewhere to hide in intervening hours. >> yeah. a couple of interesting things should be pointed out. one, first of all, it is really remarkable that he was not discovered last night. because the police presence that was on the ground in this very concentrated area was unlike anything i had ever seen. there were literally hundreds of officers and equipped in tactical outfits and flak jackets and armed with assault rifles going through the neighborhood. there were at least a half dozen different agencies responding, including state po
king, with night falling, night is actually to the advantage of law enforcement personnel. they have night vision goggles. they can control the night and if they want, they can light up the scene. >> they believe they have a tactical advantage this time as opposed to last night when they were surprised and the suspect escaped. they want to take their time, because of the risks to law enforcement and the risk to the neighborhood and because they are now amassing overwhelming presence to the point that they have essentially eye contact. they have visual contact with this believed to be the suspect and there are reports going in and among law enforcement on the scene as well as back to state officials, city officials, as far back as the justice department, the fbi in washington, trying to coordinate now the next move. yes, they believe they have a tactical advantage. they brought in extra units, military style vehicles in case there are explosives there. they have lighting and night vision equipment and the like if they decide to use that. and the question now is they believe time is th

, that recovery could take awhile. so we do know that federal law enforcement has been in there since last night and that they have been thinking about what kinds of charges they want to bring against him. it seems clear there will be federal charges and those will include terrorism. now we don't know exactly what's going on in there. we don't know anything beyond that he's in serious condition. we don't know any other medical or surgical details. jake? >> how intense is the security there? how does a hospital handle security for someone like this? >> it's very intense. there's a big police presence behind me. they are not even letting us go into the lobby to use the bathrooms or anything, which is unusual having done tons of stories like this. they usually let the media go in and out and get a cup of coffee. they reason even allowing that here. i was speaking with a doctor who frequently worked on inmates and suspects in another city. he said under these circumstances it was pretty likely that the suspect would be handcuffed to the bed and have two guards, one on each side of the bed, in additi
that would be you can see this scene to the different law-enforcement areas they are getting massive applause for their good work to keep the community safe. if mike is on the ground? >> i am here. the motion started to roll as the nnws came in that this was resolved. people crowded around a radio every time they heard a new nugget that the chair would go out and this conflict formed about three and a half blocks away from ground zero from franklin street where it went down down, it just formed up ad hoc. nobody called it people just guarded lining the road as it emerges vehicles came down one by one. different groups, a slot team, a tactical team team, generate a bigger response particularly they hit their sirens and one chance did god bless america you have a very emotional scene and people spontaneously expressing gratitude to the cops to put their lives on the wind. gerri: just taking this is in the appreciation of the community. large portion was told to stay in their home for longer periods of time then told they could leave that is when the defense started to unfold very quickly. , the
imagine? >> it is better. >> reporter: a little sampling of people relieved here in watertown as law enforcement officials are heading out of the area and, once again, you hear the crowd breaking into applause. guys, back to you. >> lily, thank you very much. >> we have been given word from watertown police they asked the media at the scene where all of this happened where you are watching the excitement come back to the location at the watertown mall where they will be holding a news conference in a moment. a number of things we are waiting to learn. first of all, how this went done and whether they believe there were other suspects. there were other bombs on scene and is there any reason to believe that people may have been involved. we were informed earlier they he took two males and a female into custody for questioning. they were not considered suspects at the time. people being brought in for questioning and it is our understanding that questioning has tenned throughout the night. the long and short of it tonight is the second of two suspects in the bombing of the boston marat
grateful for that. we o'a tremendous debt of gratitude to all of our law enforcement professionals. these men and women get up every day and they show up every day they are going don't always know what to expect. our thoughts thare wi the victims and we pray if you are eir recovwe send our prayers e collier family. police rn to be a officer. he was just 26 years old. his family said he died bravely and he committed his life to serving and protecting others. obviously, on the there is many other answered questions. among them, why did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and country resort to such violence. how did they plan an carry out these attacks and did they receive any help? the families of those killed so senselessly deserve answers. the wounded, some of whom have to learn how to stand, walk, and live again, deserve answers. so i've instructed the f.b.i. and our intelligence community to continue to deploy all of the necessary resources to support the investigation, to collect intelligence, and to protect our citizens. we will determine what ha
, president obama praising law enforcement in trackinging down the suspect, late last night after authorities announced they captured their man, this is what the president had to say. >> boston police and state police and local police across the come mop wealth of massachusetts responded with professionalism and bravery over five long days and tonight, because of their determined efforts, we have closed an important chapter in this tragedy. >> nbc's kristen welker at the white house for us. what's happening at the white house today? >> no events on the president's schedule but i can tell you behind the scenes, i have been told by administration officials, the president will be in contact with his national security team when necessary to monitor the ongoing developments in this investigation. you remember when president obama spoke last night, craig, he said there are a number of questions that need to be anticipated, included what motivated these two young men to take these hape noeinous action and of course did they have accomplices? that is the question everybody wants answered now. i don't

court decision against him and say he was not given his full constitutional rights under the law. >> already this row about whether he should have been read his so-called miranda hospital rights. it really underlines the kind of scrutiny this trial is going to be subjected to once it's underway. ,> the scrutiny for the trial but also the scrutiny of the investigation up to this point. people will be wanting to know why the fbi interviewed the older brother in 2011 at the request of the russian government, who were concerned about his links to chechen separatists. at that point they came back and said there was nothing to worry about. ,s president barack obama said they have to find out why two young men who came to this country 10 years ago, who studied here and seem to be part of the fabric of society then suddenly decided to do what they did. who perhaps radicalize them, who guided them? was there someone dictating what they do? ity people leave -- believe is too disillusioned people -- two disillusioned young man working on their own. they will not get a chance to speak to him

a little easier. for law enforcement the work is not done. >> this senseless tax and the families deserve an answer. the wounded have to learn how to stand, walk, live and deserve answers. >> reporter: just information coming and from an official the federal prosecutors are at hospital right now. working on possible charges and the camping gear since last night. and it is important to note that we remember the victim's and word that stance at this moment. 50 victims are still lead area hospitals. and they are still in critical victim's. reporting live in boston, tory done last name -- dunnin.. >> and after a gun battle. the suspect, joe- kar tsarnaev, was captured by police. tsarnaev is now in serious condition at the hospital. dramatic video has been released of the shootout between police and the it was recorded by a neighbor who, like so many in the boston area yesterday, were ordered to stay in their homes. nearly 50 shots fired in the exchange. all while the suspect was holed up in a boat. after running from police early friday morning. >> president obama took a moment to acknowledg
and not come to the conclusion that law enforcement in general, the fbi in particular as the lead agency, did a terrific job in terms of responding, of gathering evidence, of controlling the scene, of dealing with all the outfall of all of this. and ultimately in very quick fashion identifying and arresting the perpetrators. >> we live in that 24 csi, ncis world where people believe it's so easy. you just pump the information into the computer and you have all the answers. >> that's unfortunate, megyn. and now comes the really difficult part, and the part of the investigation where people need to be patient, because the fbi and the rest of the intelligence and law enforcement community will turn inside-out to identify any possible additional suspects and subjects, to determine all the activities of these two guys. the net will be cast far and wide. and every lead will be uncovered. and we need to have some patience to allow them to do that. because this is not "csi," this is the real world. >> steve, thanks so much for being here. >> you're welcome. >> all the best to you. >> thanks, megyn. >
it with a constitutional law attorney and former deputy assistant attorney general under president bush. he joins us now. i wasn't even aware this could be done in national security cases. tell us about how it works. >> sure. it's a rare exception. basically what it does is it allows law enforcement to delay issuing a suspect his miranda rights for a limited period to enable law enforcement to get information that would be relevant to public safety. for example, in this case one of the things we want to ask this guy is: is there another attack that might be imminent? who are you working with? are you part of a larger network? questions aimed at making sure public safety is protected, making sure we get any information that is time sensitive right now before he lawyers up and doesn't want to talk with us anymore. >>alisyn: we know that is vitally important because apparently the suspect planted other pipe bombs or explosives, at least, along the chase route. so they somehow knew that when they were trying to get away they had even, you know, planted other things to try to hurt and inflict more harm. so thi
step? let's ask the executive director of the american center for law and justice. good morning. i think a lot of folks are not familiar with this public safety exemption. why invoke that at this time? >> usually it's rare, it would be an instance where there is a gun or some kind of in this situation, unexploded bombs. it's important for people to understand, this is not the most extreme move. what you get from this is very limited interrogation and on top of that, it has to be directed questions. what does that mean? the questions can only go to minimizing and eliminating the immediate emergency. because that's why you've invoked this exception to the miranda warning which is required by supreme court precedent. but they did carve this out. >> the u.s. government is concerned about any potential new attacks so they want to limit their questions to asking about that, and they won't be able to ask those questions until he actually comes out of surgery and is aware of his surroundings. >> that's right. >> and mentally competent, right? >> the questions you would ask, right, you do h
conditn. >> thank you, brian. meantime, thousands of federal and local law enforcement officers worked all week to solve the case. but in the end, a tip from the public is what did it. elizabeth vargas was in boston for that. the public has been part of it from the beginning. >> reporter: in this case, 1 million plus people had been under lockdown for the entire day. they were -- the all-cheer was lifted. just 25 minutes later, one man in watertown went into his backyard to walk the dog and get a breath of fresh air for the first time all day. that's when he spotteding is significant. >> we didn't know what was going on. then we heard the initial gunfire. >> reporter: overnight, neighbors were startled by the surge of s.w.a.t. teams and gunfire less than an hour after the curfew was lifted. >> it's unbelievable. i was cooped up. wondering if the guy was in my backyard. >> reporter: it was the vigilance of david henneberry, he found the suspect hiding in a boat in his backyard. >> he look ted a the boat and said, things are moved around. that is strange. >> reporter: a neighbor spoke exclus
here and -- malls here and starting to bring in massive amounts of law enforcement, 1,000, maybe 1500 people there and 200 or 300 reporters. a lot of trucks settling. and then it started to getting to a drone. we kept on delays in press conferences and then you couldn't ask questions. they would just read statements. they had the governor there, the mayor there and the head of the police department and the state police. then they told us to go away. >> suarez: we have a half minute left. was there a sense as it was reaching the final moment that's a corner had been turned, that this was almost over? >> yes. after they lifted the lockdown order all of a sudden they have these shots and they seemed to absolutely have found him. and now they do and the cheers went up and now it's over. >> suarez: bruce, just a short time ago it's been confirmed three other people were taken into custody in new bedford not far from where dzhokar tsarnaev attends college at a branch of university massachusetts system. do we know about that? >> i don't. if you put pieces of the puzzle they told us they were
. >> there is a massive manhunt under way. a lot of law enforcement involved in that. to assist that we have suspended all service on the m.b.t.a., our public transit service, and this will continue until we think it's safe to open all or some of that. we're asking people to shelter in place-- in other words to stay indoors with their doors locked and notto open the door for anyo other than a properly identified law enforcement officer. and that applies here in watertown where we are right now. also cambridge, waltham, newton, belmont and, at this point, all of boston. all of boston. this is a serious situation. we're taking it seriously. we're asking the public to take it seriously as well and to assist law enforcement by following these simple instructions. we've got every asset that we can possibly muster on the ground right now. they are doing a terrific job and working in concert with each other but we are going to need the public to help us help them stay safe. >> reporter: in washington, the president convened a briefing in the white house situation room with almost a dozen top aides. the search f

the suspect is. i mean, no shortage of police here. it's incredible the amount of law enforcement presence that is here to watch this, what appears to be final act play out. >> yeah. that's right. it's incredible because we are outside the perimeter that was searched all day long. i mean those 20 blocks in watertown and cambridge that he we were telling you about all day long. that was over this direction. but this is over here. so, if he was here all day he was outside the perimeter where the police have been searching for him all day long. i find that really interesting. right after the 5:30 press conference that where the state police said well we didn't get him, we're going to start pulling things back, almost immediately, i'm talking like within half an hour, we hear the gunfire and then everything starts erupting over here in this direction. now, we did have a camerthat we moment that those explosions were going off, and we hope to be able to turn that around for you fairly quickly. we had to move our live truck. we had to move all kinds of things, folks so please bear with us. we ar
